Serbian man indicted for threats against N1 Kosovo correspondent Izvor: N1

Prosecutors in Belgrade on Wednesday filed an indictment against a man suspected of threatening N1 TV’s Pristina correspondent Zana Cimili.

The High-Technology Prosecution filed the indictment against Nenad Vujatov (33) from the town of Becej in Vojvodina with the Higher Court in Belgrade, charging him with inciting racial, religious and ethnic hatred and intolerance and demanding a sentence of four years.  

Vujatov was arrested on July 6 after threatening Cimili and her family on social networks.  

“The person who threatened our reporter Zana Cimili wrote in a comment that his “life-long wish is to kill an Albanian, even an Albanian child” and that he “hopes that a new war will break out in Kosovo so that the the Albanians can feel Serb wrath”. N1 condemns this frightening hate speech and threats against the N1 reporter who does her job professionally and responsibly. The threats against Zana Cimili and other N1 journalists are not threats to individual journalists but threats to freedom of speech and freedom of the media as fundamental democratic rights,” N1 said.  

The Association of Journalists of Kosovo (ANK) and the Association of Journalists of Serbia (UNS) also condemned the threats as did Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.
